The clamped fins aren't okay !

You mean the caudal fin? It's caudal fin is rounded BTW.. But ehhh the fish is aggressive to the other smaller gourami.

I mean all its fins. The dorsal looks elongated and the shape of the fish in general looks like a male to me.

Got a pic of the other one ? How big is the tank?

The tank is 39 gallons, H: 18inches' L:3 ft, W:14 inches. This could be male but the other male I have is smaller but this new one.. Is just wider and bigger

Inclined to agree. I don’t think it’s fully erect which can make it look longer. Males are usually even longer than this.
